love the delf and the recording
delf ranges from boring to jarring to transcendental, depending on the night. This version of the delf is of the transcendental variety- fuz and mallet work wonders together and the tabla work is excellent. Like a Silence > improv > As Above is a magical journey, great for a vinyasa yoga practice or a chill-out session. The delf stage recordings tend to be excellent, but at the Lizard Lounge expect to hear lots of crowd chatter, which becomds too much, especially w/ headphones. Here, at least in the first set, the crowd noise is at a minimum and the recording shines. Peace.

if you like this check out Fareed Haque Group, similar ideas with the dj and Tablas, and Fareed is one of the geratest guitar players out there.

How amazingly insanly crazyly expermentally, funk-a-dillioso are these guys....VERY! First time, i've been spechless to a bands sound...it's hard to even match up another band with them. Totally unexplainable...that's how tripped out they are. I wasn't really fealing the first song I listened to...so give it some time to catch up to you...then jump on it and let it take your ass on a ride....cuz it will. By the way, bad ass recording...no fuz what so ever. Very very clean.

Rob, if you & Scotty keep posting the shows I'll certainly keep puting together fairly accurate setlists. Thanks for your continious documentation of the d'Elf! If you have others that are not up here please post 'em, even if only for different sources of already circulating shows. This show does it for me, especially the Salvia & the extended Tingler.
Mike Rivard - Basses, Sintir
Dave "Fuze" Fiuczynski - Guitar
Alain Mallet - Keys, Midi Flute
Mister Rourke - Turntables
Jerry Leake - Tablas, Percussion
Erik Kerr - Drums
